Even though first responders are among those slated to be first in line for the newly unveiled Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines, most of the firefighters in New York City, anyway, are saying that they plan to opt out of the scheme.
A survey of 2,053 NYC firefighters found that a whopping 55 percent of them responded “no” when asked the question, “Will you get the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer when the Department makes it available?”
The Uniformed Firefighters Association (UFA) conducted the survey in advance of the impending distribution of Chinese Virus vaccines in the Big Apple, which are expected to arrive later this month.
Mayor Bill de Blasio is excited to start jabbing New Yorkers once loads of the WuFlu jab start arriving in a few short weeks. The plan is to start injecting first responders immediately, followed by city workers and others.
Interestingly, mass transit employees feel much the same way as firefighters when it comes to how they plan to respond to the vaccine’s unveiling. Less than one in three of MTA workers are planning to get jabbed, a similar survey from back in August found.
“A lot of them probably feel they are not in a risk category, they are younger, stronger, they may have already had it and gotten through it and feel it’s not their problem,” stated UFA president Andy Ansbro.
“They are more familiar with the coronavirus than they are with the vaccine,” he added.

Doing its part to try to manipulate more people into agreeing to get jabbed, Facebook recently announced a new censorship scheme aimed at squelching content that questions or opposes COVID-19 jabs.
“We are applying our policy to remove misinformation about the virus that could lead to imminent physical harm,” a tech giant spokesperson revealed. “This could include false claims about the safety, efficacy, ingredients or side effects of the vaccines.”
As an example, Facebook says it will remove “false claims” that COVID-19 vaccines “contain microchips or anything else that isn’t on the official vaccine ingredient list.” Facebook is also planning to aggressively push COVID-19 vaccination on its platform.
“We will also remove conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines that we know today are false, like specific populations are being used without their consent to test the vaccine’s safety.”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo also chimed in with excitement about how his state is expected to receive 170,000 doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 15. In the weeks following, more shipments of both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines will also arrive.
According to Cuomo, the first people to receive these larger batches of the vaccine will be healthcare workers and nursing home residents. From there, the distribution list will go from “most important” to “least important.”
“We are working closely with the state of New York on a distribution plan with an important focus on those who have the greatest need and need to get the vaccine in the first efforts,” de Blasio is further quoted as saying.
Both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are urging people to take the vaccine as recommended, citing alleged “success” from vaccines for things like measles and pertussis as “evidence” that COVID-19 vaccines will “work,” too.
“Vaccines can prevent infectious diseases that once killed or harmed many infants, children, and adults,” the CDC announced.
Anthony Fauci, a play-pretend television doctor, further indicated that young people at the bottom of the priority list will get their COVID-19 vaccines in the spring.
“Once you get into April, probably full blast with those individuals,” Fauci is quoted as saying.
